Top-Secret Grandad and Me: Death by Soup
Suitable for children in P4 to P5
Since his dad literally did a vanishing act (he’s a magician!), Jay Patel has turned detective, and now, with the help of his ghostly grandpa, he’s on a new case — a murder in a fancy country hotel where the cause of death appears to be… Soup!
Suitable for children age 8+
The war is won but for Tony there is little to celebrate. His brother never returned from no man’s land and has died not as a hero but executed as a coward. Refusing to believe that his brother was a traitor, a grief stricken Tony is pushed to the edge in his dark quest to uncover the horrifying truth. A thrilling narrative of intertwining perspectives.
